Today’s tip stems from a patient named Joe, who asked me why his neuropathy was worse when it was raining/wet outside.
Actually, the neuropathy isn’t worse . . . it’s arthritis! You see, when it’s humid (the barometric pressure changes), the fluid in your bursas/joints, etc. expands, causing an immediate increase in the pressure in the joints/joint capsules. This increased pressure squeezes nerves. The nerves then start “firing” to let you know they are not happy!
Hope this tip helps in your quest to relieve/eliminate neuropathy symptoms. If you have any specific questions, feel free to call my office at 336-778-0292.
